APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The SSP Configuration manager is utilizing the incorrect
    communications path when accessing the Engine.  Need the
    ability to bind to a specific communication path.
    

Local fix

  • adding static route to redirect traffic temporarily.
    

Problem summary

  • Allow SSP Configuration Manager to bind to a specific NIC
    The Customer runs the CM on a dual-homed system with 2 network
    interface cards (NICs). Their firewall is configured to only
    allow traffic out from the secure zone on one of the NICs, but
    the CM defaults to the other.  The Customer needed a way to have
    the CM bind to the alternate NIC when connecting out to the
    engine to push a configuration.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Added a field to the CM "SSP Engine Configuration" screen called
    "Local bind address", which allows the administrator to specify
    the local IP address to bind to when making the connection to
    the Engine host and port.  This optional field allows the local
    IP address as either a hostname or IP address value. When the
    screen is saved, the address is checked to make sure it is local
    to the machine and that it can be connected to.  If not, an
    error message is posted and the configuration is not saved.
